The Old Smithy is located on St John Street in the centre of Creetown. Presently used as a store, the property has previously had planning permission for a change of use to form a dwelling house (planning reference 07/P/2/0123). That permission was granted in 2007, and so has now lapsed and it would be for any future purchaser to satisfy themselves directly with the local planning department should they wish to reinstate the planning permission for change of use. It is understood that planning guidance has not altered since 2007.
The original plans were to insert a dormer window and bedroom in the upstairs accommodation with the living accommodation being on the ground floor. The property enjoys good views from the first floor so consideration could be given to making the upstairs of the building into the living accommodation, with 1 or 2 bedrooms on the ground floor. Obviously any alterations are subject to planning and at this stage the property provides a blank canvas for a purchaser’s imagination (subject to permissions!).
Creetown is a pleasant village with a very active community initiative. There is a good local store and the Ellengowan Hotel is the famous set for the ‘Wickerman’. Creetown is situated off the A75 Euro Route, which allows quick access to other nearby towns such as Gatehouse of Fleet and Newton Stewart. There are many beautiful sandy beaches and rocky coves within easy reach and equally dramatic inland scenery. Creetown is well situated to access a full range of outdoor activities for all. Services
